Brash Higgins MAGNUM 2019 ‘GRNCH’ Grenache Biodynamic

GRNCH

This is our first stand alone Grenache. One parcel of Grenache from a Biodynamically farmed site in Yangarra’s distinctive sandy soils of Upper Blewitt Springs were hand-picked on the same day and co-fermented using wild yeast in an open fermenter for 2 weeks. Ten months in a trusty French puncheon further forged the fine red berry tones of Grenache. 

‘Pretty nose, floral and sweet fruited, pinot like. Notes of feijoa, orange peel and spice co-mingles nicely with the lively, bright red fruits. Medium bodied, easily accessible with dusty tannins, the GRNCH really showcases the openly fruity nature of Grenache, as well as the structure needed for longer ageing. Transparent, this is pretty stuff.’ – Brad Hickey, Vinitor, Jan 30, 2020.
